Re: [Who? What? Where?] - Week 7 (2012) - Australian Open (GS)

Sydney Champion Ready For Grand Slam Glory

Melbourne, Australia
Top American Venus Williams comes in fresh off her Sydney win. Venus has had good showings with 3 SFs and a QF, but the week before Sydney saw Venus have an off day.
"I lost in Tokyo because I had forgotten to send my points my game just didn't show up. I had nothing against Heather. She would keep the ball in and I would make tons of errors. It was a bad day that motivated me to go straight to Sydney and have a great result, which I did. It was nice."
Venus was the 4th seed in Sydney and received a R1 bye.
"The Bye was nice because it gave me a chance to work even more on my game and get used to the courts."
The QF saw Venus come out rough like she did in Tokyo once again, receiving yet another bagel. But the second set saw Venus' level rise out of no where. Smacking winners all past Stosur. Stosur's big serve couldn't bail her out as Venus would crack winners off that too. There was no answer as an angry Venus delivered a bagel right back. The third set saw Venus get that one necessary break for the 6-3 victory.

"Sam was tough. It took me a while to get used to her hard top spin forehand and big kick serve. No one else plays like that so it was a challenge to get used to it. But once I did I had no issue at all with her game. I played well and I hope to continue it against my next opponent."
Her next opponent would be Bojana Jovanovski. Bojana had beaten Venus in Cairo. Bojana started off great like Sam just making Venus work to earn points, let alone games as she eased to a 6-0 first set. Venus would not settle losing to Bojana again as her eyes filled with rage and determination. Venus cruised to win 12 of the last 13 games with 40 winners, 12 of which were aces.

"I struggled at the start once again. I went out there wanting revenge though. I know Bojana is a decent player, but if I play my game I would easily beat her."
This would set up a Final clash with Anastasia Myskina, another player that has beaten Venus this season, this time in the QFs of Dubai.
Venus would show off her trademark slow start once again with 6-0, but would breeze past Myskina 6-0 6-0 in the second and third.

"If we take away the first sets of all my matches this week I played amazing tennis. It really is great to get the title off my back and out of the way to focus on now winning the bigger titles. And it is amazing to rebound this well after my performance in Tokyo. This makes me excited for the Australian Open. I look forward to playing and hopefully just keep improving."


Venus hit the practice courts in Melbourne yesterday and gave a pre-tournament interview.
"I feel great and confident. You know, I played well in Sydney. There are a few things that need fixing, but I am getting there. The courts here are great, exactly like Sydney, so that makes me feel even better. I won there and hope to win here too. It is my dream to win an Australian Open title."
Venus' draw is not so dreamy though as it is loaded with all the players that have beaten her this season. Watson in R2, Krajicek in QF, Zvonareva or Myskina potentially in SF, and Jovanovski final.
"It is an incredibly tough draw. I have only lost to 5 players this season and 4 of them are in my half of the draw. I mean every round could be someone I have lost to previously this season. I just got to play my game and execute it well to come through with wins. No matter how I play I just want to fight for every point and game until I lift the winner's trophy."
